Wow, I can’t believe I haven’t blogged about anything in a week, but it’s because we’ve been busy with our recent renovation project for our backyard. We had an enclosed sun room, and after two years of living here – we finally took it out! It was poorly installed, and it took Lorenzo 15 minutes to take the entire thing out. He unscrewed the nails, and then proceeded to kick the walls down like crazy. We cleaned up the mess, painted the exterior of the house, and we are finally enjoying our backyard patio. It’s so nice to sit on the back porch with the nice summer breeze, and we’ve been sipping on some Limonada. It’s quite refreshing and very easy to make. Enjoy!
